Did I finally beat Playoffs?!
not sure, saw it posted yesterday somewhere

terrible break for the young man. quick question, do these prospects already have agents in place with insurance packages or are teams on the hook when invited to facilities for workout?

I would certainly look at him for Texans with one of those 6th rd. selections. I hope he doesn't fall this far, but if he did certainly wouldn't be Mr. Irrelevant?

According to this article about 75% are insured.

As a 6th or 7th round pick I think he'll be a steal, assuming he recovers alright. Put him on IR for the first year and I'd be super pleased.

Seems like half our picks last year were on IR. You say we should draft a guy just to IR him?

In the 6th or 7th round? With this guy I think we should. He was easily a 2nd or 3rd rounder before this and if he's there in one of our later 6th round picks I'd be willing to do it for a mauler like him. But I probably wouldn't take him 6-1, and definitely not earlier.

I understand why that might not be a popular thought though.

Seems like the Jaguars are making an attempt to bring in the entire 2014 draft class in for visits.

McCullers/Clowney shouldn't be included in the Henderson group. McCullers is a 352 lbs man who played too many snaps last yr. It's impossible for a man that big to keep up his stamina for a full game. He needed a break but the Vols had very little depth in the DL.

Personally I thought McCullers and Clowney made impacts on the game. I see McCullers as a 5 tech in RAC's defense.

I will be doing a mock soon that will reflect this. You should check it out and give me your thoughts.

Seems like they are leaving no stone unturned.

Maybe the Texans org could learn a thing or two.

They do seem to be bringing in more guys than the past regime.

I think they finally made a good coaching change. Gus Bradley has an aura around him so suspect ownership has given him not just the keys to the car but house money to turn things around.

Insured yes, if not drafted.

But not insured for the difference between being a 2nd rd pick before injury and a 6th rd pick after injury.

30 maximum visits per team. I like the idea of having all the QBs there at the same time and jacking with them a bit. One per room, go room-to-room, back and forth, test their retention, amp up their anxiety. Take them all out to dinner together and stir the pot, see how they all act/react.

Never considered McCullers as a 5tech.

Who do you have as potential NTs?

Rd.1 Nix
Rd.3 DaQuan Jones
3-4. Justin Ellis who I also believe has the feet to play the 5 tech.
Rd.5 Beau Allen/Carrethers/Caraun Reid
Rd.6 Deandre Coleman, who could also play the 5 tech/Zack Kerr/Khyri Thorton
Rd.7 Mike Pennel/Robert Thomas/Bruce Gaston
